Leaf Collection in the Piedmont Triad

Leaf collection is a service that is provided by most of the larger cities in the Piedmont Triad. A few things to remember when bringing your leaves toward the street:
1. Rake leaves to the edge of your yard, behind the curb, and not on the street
2. Sticks, rocks or debris can damage the equipment. Please be sure there are only leaves in the pile.
3. Do not park on, near, or in front of a pile of leaves.  This video from Greensboro shows why.

4. Do not put your leaves on a tarp.


Leaves can NOT be burned inside the city limits!

Within the city of Winston-Salem, you can check your leaf collection date on the city website here. Check collection schedule DAILY for UPDATES as estimated time of collection is subject to change due to weather conditions, equipment problems and the volume of leaves placed out for collection. As a gauge for your own leaf collection, we were scheduled for pick-up the week of November 19 and our leaves were collected yesterday, December 5. The following video is of the city collecting leaves from our front yard.


In the City of Greensboro, there are two collection rounds. If your leaves are at the curb by November 13 they will be picked up by December 21. If your leaves are curbside by December 26, they will be picked up by January 26, 2013.
